    When I Was Young...

    When I was young, up until my teens, alot of the music I heard was at my Grandmothers, she would listen to Tchaikovsky, Mozart, Beethoven etc etc. I used to dance with her and her husband, I would feel like I was a ballerina or a fairy. I love the classics from the ballet, like...

    Uplifting and Relaxing.

    I like to listen to Mozart and Tchachovski, it can be both relaxing or uplifting depending on your mood and where you want to go with your mood.

    Me Too

    My favourite piece of classical music is Canon in D by Pachabel. I also like Mozart's Horn Concerto No. 4, Eine kleine Nachtmusik, Rondo Alla Turca, The Marriage of Figaro Overture and The Magic Flute. Vivaldi's Gloria and Four Seasons.

    All Moods Any Moods

    I've always been a nonconformist. My interest in classical music began when I was in grade school. We had a local station at a university whose programming varied based on who the announcer was. They had news broadcasts, NPR like interviews and classical music. That caught my...

    I Love Classical Music.

    When I was small my Mum took me to see Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture, being performed with real cannons. Still kinda regret I don't remember it that well. Rock on classical music!

    Rare Composers

    I like to find unusual composers as well as the greats like Rachmaninov and Beethoven. E.G. Adolf von Henselt, Joachim Raff, Ignaz Moscheles, Johann Nepomuk Hummel, Kalkbrenner, Wollf. People think if a name is'nt well known the music cannot be worthwhile, yet it is sometimes...

    Taste

    I like the romantics. Chopin, Mahler, Beethoven. Brahms is aight. Tchaikovsky was always a bit too Russian for me. JSB is the man. Such wonderful complexity to his music... and then there's the modern stuff. Schoenberg was a genius. I like Barber too, beyond just his Adagio...

    Music is a great joy.

    I love classical music of all sorts. At the moment I'm working on 'Scenes from Childhood' by Robert Schumann. Wonderful! But I love so much of Schumann's piano music, like the Kreisleriana, the Fantasie and the piano concerto.

    While I'm by no means an expert

    and connoiseur of classical music, I enjoy it from time to time. Probably my favorite piece at the time is Dance of the Knights aka Montagues and Capulets by Sergei Prokofiev.And nobody still does it better than the Russians! Sadly, all the Bolshoi Ballet videos seem to have...

    WA Mozart

    I can listen to his piano concertos all day. There is something distinctly mesmerising about the music and I am thrilled to listen to it. I have even made love to Mozart.

    Magical

    I'm not a hardcore Classical music guy. I only know a handful of composers. But that shouldn't stop me from liking sonatas and symphonies, right? I enjoy listening to Beethoven's Ninth Symphony--it's the most uplifting piece of music I've ever heard. I have some of Mozart and...

    Carmina Burana

    Carmina Burana is definitely something I love to listen to. Apart from being mostly Latin (which I love) also the music is great. I don't listen to classical music very often. But I definitely appreciate an artist's talent. Be it classical music or electronical.
